Baby tooth enamel deterioration

Friday, Feb. 5th 2010 10:33 AM

Can a baby be born with bad tooth enamel?

My Friends daughter who is one year old seems to have bad tooth enamel on her baby teeth that have come in.  She already got one cavity even though my friend brushes and cleans her teeth three times a day.  She has taken her to see a dentist and he said she had week tooth enamel so she need to be extra careful in keeping her teeth clean.

Is there anything she can do?  I know there is tooth paste for teeth enamel for that is for adults. Is there anything like that for a baby?

    Yes A baby can have bad tooth enamel even before the tooth cuts though. Sometimes it happens do to different medications that may have been taking during pregnancy.

    You may want to tell your friend that she could ask her dentist about sealants for her daughter teeth. Sealants will help prevent tooth decay much like her tooth enamel would have.

    My son was the same way. He also had bad tooth enamel. He had to have five filling done before he was even two. The dentist advise us about sealants for his teeth. It was a little costly but in the long run much cheaper then him getting cavities. It was also much easier on my son too.
